Gov’t Mule celebrated Halloween at Chicago, IL’s Riviera Theatre. As previously reported, the group paid tribute to Jimi Hendrix during the show, focusing on material they have never performed live. Gov’t Mule covers a particular musician or band’s catalog every Halloween but they chose Hendrix this year in order to coincide with what would have been the guitarist’s 70th birthday. The group’s past Halloween shows have paid tribute to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and The Who.
‘Lost in a Lover’s Dream’ is a laid-back affair of romantic ballads and philosophical blues featuring Fame singing in the intimate setting of just guitar and bass. The album opens with the classic Andy Fairweather-Low pop classic ”Wide-Eyed and Legless”, followed by a mix of popular standards and Fame originals. ”Skiiing Blues” and the medley ”There’s No More Blue Time / Breezin’ All the Way” are paricular highlights. On the popular standards front there’s ”Cry Me a River”, ”My Foolish Heart” and ”I Can’t Get Started (With You)”. ”Blossom” is for singer Blossom Dearie, who praised Fame in the 60’s with her own composition, ”Sweet Georgie Fame”. All in all this is an album that qualifies the fact that Georgie Fame is the most original jazz voice this country has ever produced.
5 beautiful, well written songs featuring a perfect collaboration. The low mournful sound of the old time fiddle meshes perfectly with Scott’s voice and guitar. He is truly among the best songwriters of our time!
